Description for Water Splash Photography

I took this rock splashing in water photo below as my husband was skipping a rock in a lake. Water splash photography is fun when it is done right. It can also be difficult to catch the splash at just the right time. While using my telephoto lens, I shot this water splash picture at 283 mm. I like the detail you can see of the water drops flying up as the rock splashes down. The rock is not visible in the photo as it has already skipped out of the frame, but the spot where the rock skipped on top of the water is shown in this photo.

How to Capture a Splash Photo

To capture a water splash photo, you must use a fast shutter speed. The splash needs to be captured in motion and if the shutter speed is slow, the motion will be blurry. You want the image to be sharp and clear with water droplets flying up and no blurry motion in the picture. I used a shutter speed of 1/600 seconds for this rock splashing in the water photo and it worked out well.

Another must do trick to catch water splashes without any blur is to use a tripod. The tripod will help stabilize your hand motion and reduce any movement of the camera itself.

Finally, you should focus your camera on the spot you expect the water splash to happen and keep it focused there. If the focus is already set, it will be easier to capture the shot as it happens.
